Why saving gas is better for your car than racing
 
Just saw this on a honda forum. The effects of driving your car too hard will eventually come back to haunt you.

Autocross
 
I've been considering taking the 'Teg for an Autocross spin once a month or so (I doubt my engine will blow like the pic) and maybe promote gassavers.org in the process. What ever happened to those stickers? Even though I'm not looking to win any awards, I miss it, and it keeps the skills sharp. I'd have to run in "modified" or "STS" since the intake has been modded, but oh well. Maybe I can get some friends or the Wife to participate (automatic - so everyone can play)!

the 2006 rule book is online this year:

here are the pax indecies:
